Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany your home away from home

The region of Saxony-Anhlat is in the central north east of Germany and is one of 16 member states. It was formerly part of the Federal state of East Germany. The capital of the region is the beautiful town of Magdeburg. This scenic area is due in part to its location on the banks of the Elbe and Saale rivers and is at the heart of German history. The Reformation began at Wittenberg where Martin Luther taught at the university. Saxony-Anhalt includes the Harz Mountains and the Saale-Unstut region to the southeast of the mountains is dotted with castles. Further north are the fertile Magdeburger Börde and the Altmark heathlands.

Things to Do in Saxony-Anhalt

Go wine-tasting in the vineyards of the Saale and Unstrut region which are the most northerly wine growing areas in Germany. Take a guided tour of the winery before sampling the local produce. For quieter days out, stroll along the riverbanks of the Elbe with its meadows filled with wildlife. Tour the delightful towns from your holiday rental in Saxony-Anhalt by car, walking, cycling or on a guided tour. See the impressive architecture and learn about the history of this lovely area. Many cathedrals and towns are associated with Martin Luther and provide cultural and educational visits.

Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt, is a leafy town packed with historical buildings in its shady tree-lined streets.

They are all listed UNESCO World Heritage sites. Merseberg was a seat of royalty and has a multi-turreted cathedral and a castle overlooking the scenic River Saale.

Modernised apartment block in rural location

5 of 5
This is a very convenient village location for some great sights in the Harz region. Apartment is modern, clean and well-equipped. There were a number of brochures and a "Tips" book - though all in German. The owner lives next door to an immensely helpful fluent english-speaker, so overall, it worked out really well for us! The only thing I missed was a wifi connection - hadn't realised how useful this has become.

The house is divided in 2 appartments, so you live very close to your neighbours. The appartment is very comfortable, new and well-equipped, near an open green place.
